Cauliflower Cheese Savoury Waffles – Thermomix Batter

The idea for me to create a savoury waffles for the Thermomix came about from a lovely Thermobexta Facebook group member, Claire. She posted a photo last night of some savoury waffles she’d made her family for dinner.

They looked terrific and her kids liked them… However, they asked if she could please not make them again for at least two years! hahah from the mouths of babes…

Well that got me in the mood to eat savoury waffles and I knew a batter would be made in seconds in the Thermomix. This was something I hadn’t eaten before but sounded like something I’d like!

I’ve been wanting to create a cauliflower cheese fritter for a long time. So I combined the two ideas and have come up with this very yummy savoury waffle!

Oh and I asked if Claire would like to test them out on her kids. She said she’d love to. They had them for dinner and when she asked if they’d like them again sometime, the response was ‘yes… tomorrow!’

Don’t Have a Waffle Maker?

This is the waffle maker I use and recommend (no affiliation). If you don’t have a waffle maker and are looking to purchase, I highly recommend you spend a little more on something like this than buy a cheapie. Like with everything, you get what you pay for.

I’ve had several people upgrade their cheapies to this one, on my recommendation and being very impressed about how much better waffles are for them now!

If you’d prefer to try a different method of cooking, I’ve seen them looking fabulous coming out of a good old jaffle maker, also fried in a frying pan and made in pie makers!

More a Sweet Tooth?

For sweet waffles, check out my Thermomix Waffles! Actually they can be served sweet or savoury, but generally we serve them with sweet toppings. These Cauliflower Cheese Waffles we love with eggs, or just by themselves as a savoury bite!

Servings: 10
Calories: 170kcal


  • 250 g cauliflower roughly chopped
  • 30 g spring onion roughly chopped
  • 10 g parsley
  • 150 g tasty cheddar cheese diced 2cm
  • 150 g milk
  • 30 g olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 110 g white spelt or plain flour (Note 1)
  • 1/2 – 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 100 g sweetcorn kernels


  • Pre-heat waffle maker while you make the batter.
  • Place all ingredients EXCEPT sweetcorn in mixer bowl. Blend 10 seconds/speed 6/MC on. Scrape down bowl.
  • Add sweetcorn. Mix 10 seconds/speed 3/MC on.
  • Cook as per your waffle maker instructions.


Note 1: GLUTEN FREE: Use ORGRAN gluten free flour.
Note 2: For lower carb waffles, flour can be replaced with 100g almonds. Simply mill 10 seconds/speed 10/MC on before commencing recipe. Increase eggs to 3. If you’d like to lower the carbs even more, you can leave out the corn. Please note, since publishing this recipe a couple of people have had issues with this version sticking to their waffle maker, others have made them successfully. I’ve made them like this numerous times in my waffle maker with no issue, but if your waffle maker is old or not non-stick, take care and be gentle.
Note 3: This is the waffle maker I use, I really like it (I don’t have any affiliation with Cuisinart or Kitchen Warehouse).

I love the look of these but was hoping someone has made them dairy free before?

Amazing recipe, perfect for a quick snack (reheat in toaster) or proper meal. Delicious way to get some extra veg in too. Thanks Bec

Have made these over and over again, I love eating them on their own or topped with avocado or a poached egg and smoked salmon. This is such a flexible recipe, when I don’t have enough cauliflower I’ve used sweet potato and broccoli and they still turned out great.

Can’t get enough of these, absolutely love them & they’re a winner with the kids. Potato & zucchini are also fab in them. Our go-to quick dinner option.

I made a double batch of these yesterday, prepared the mix in the morning and left in fridge for the day as I had 10 min spare. Kiddies loved them. We had them with Avo. tomato, corn salsa. The left overs as ready for a quick reheat meal. Thank you for another awesome family recipe x

We tried this this evening and while the reception from the kids was not unequivocal, they got eaten and vegetables were consumed unknowingly! And we both loved ours. Will definitely be in the meal rotation.
